The only site for IT resellers to source stock from authorized distributors is now hitting the North American market – hard!

London, UK., April 7th, 2016 – Stock In The Channel, a leading global search engine for IT resellers to find stock from authorized distributors in one location, is now expanding its e-commerce solutions to the North American market. With over 300 distributors, 50,000 registered users and 4 million IT products listed worldwide, Stock In The Channel offers the only solution to sourcing stock the old-fashioned way – saving resellers time and money on procurement. The best part is it’s absolutely free for resellers to start searching!

Aiming to get over 100 distributors listed on the site by Q3, the company plans to eliminate the old-fashioned way of sourcing stock in North America just as it has in the UK and Europe since its start 6 years ago. Stock In The Channel offers the only solution to sourcing stock from multiple distributor sites by providing one location with stock from multiple distributors so resellers always get the right price. Currently, the North American site allows resellers to search stock from over 18 leading distributors such as Ingram Micro, Tech Data, Synnex and IT Xchange.

Tony Meyers, CEO of Stock In The Channel, says, “Who doesn’t want to save hours worth of sourcing and save money while doing it? It’s the 21st century, we shouldn’t still be using such an out-dated system to source stock when we don’t even do that for our personal shopping – why should this be any different? We are excited to offer the North American market the opportunity to enjoy the modern way of sourcing and all of the benefits that come with it!”

Founded in the United Kingdom in 2009, Stock In The Channel now operate dedicated domains for 22 countries, each featuring products from distributors serving that specific territory. With over 6 years of growth within Europe, Stock In The Channel has become the go-to site for thousands of busy sales and purchasing professionals and receives 1.5 million page views a month.
